In brief: Different approach

If you are talking about pain after surgery, different types of pain relief are possible and may be used in combination.
Your doctor may prescribe a narcotic (vicodin, dilaudid, etc.) along with tylenol (acetaminophen) or a NSAID such as ibuprofen. Depending on the type of surgery, a nerve block or epidural might be helpful for postop pain. We would need more information about the specific cause of the pain.
